« Peter was called to walk upon the waters. This is what life for Christians must be…”  
Sr. Ruth Burrows OCD

We are all called to walk on the water!

What does that bold call to risk and to action mean for me in my life today - concretely? How and where am I being called to step out of the boat and onto the water with nothing to hold on to but Jesus?  What makes me hesitate?  

This retreat will be a time to live, pray and reflect on these questions; to look at our own lives as well the lives of others who have dared to step out onto the water in faith and courage.


Practical Information

This retreat will be offered online over a period of six days, and will comprise:  

  • Four inspirational talks with George Durner by video link (sent in advance) for four days of the retreat.
  • Two prayer-sheets with introduction by video clip to guide you during two days of the retreat so that you can enjoy your own personal time of prayer and reflection.
  • Two days where you are invited to share with a sharing partner or a sharing group for a time of reflection and for a period of approximately an hour, if you so wish.
